Vibration Monitoring Education: Insights from Dr. Charles Dowding

In 2022, Sigicom hosted a lecture series given by Dr. Charles Dowding where he reviewed the fundamentals of vibrations, structural response, and construction site monitoring. The lectures were well received and produced insightful discussion.

In this video, Dr. Dowding touches on the importance of increasing seismographic and vibration monitoring knowledge and education in an evolving industry. He lists three principal educational areas:

  1. Understanding the instrumentation
  2. Understanding structural response
  3. Understanding geology
